Software company Lanner
and virtual reality specialist Virtalis
are further strengthening their partnership to deliver the “value of integrated predictive simulation and visualisation capabilities for digital-twin environments” for businesses in many sectors, thereby allowing them to “experience simulations of their business processes within immersive 3-D environments”.
They can then review, remodel and replay different business and operational process scenarios. Virtalis’s ‘Visionary Render’ allows disparate data sources, such as Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), financial systems, CAD and BIM (building information modelling) data to be visualised simultaneously in a ‘similarly collaborative environment’.
With the addition of Lanner’s predictive models, data from future scenarios can also be included, thereby allowing users to step back and forward through time to understand how, why and what may happen.
Lanner’s COO Andrew Aitken said: “The value of business data models and repositories is no longer constrained to
experts, data scientists or business analysts but instead can be delivered via widely deployable digital-twin applications to the operational and business decision makers.
“In today’s volatile world it is vital that they are furnished with decision support tools which can bring data to life in order to make smarter decisions earlier and more frequently than ever before.”
Robert Boers, Virtalis’s CEO, added: “We are excited to see where Virtalis’s visualisation technology is heading when combined with Lanner’s Witness technology, and the parallel direction of our roadmaps will ensure we are at the forefront of the digital-twin market and can continue to provide our customers with world-leading predictive and visualisation technology.”
